The hydraulic shock type strut is clipped on. You pry off the metal clip on both end and the strut will pop off. The new ones just push on without having to remove the metal clip

If you mean standard tailgate supports, no electric / pneumatic or power ones. Then you just lower the tailgate and bend the "v" hinges upwards until they come off, or cables on newer trucks, and lift gate to a 45 degree angle and they pull right off. If you mean industrial style heavy duty stuff, re post this question and I'll send you a wide variety of schematics. I have info from everything from right hand drive 3 cylinder pick ups, up to big rigs and even some VERY heavy equipment. Hope I helped. Grimm

My tailgate will not stay up on my 2002 v70 wagon. Can you help?


You need new tailgate struts. Most auto parts stores sell them. Just stick a broom stick under the tailgate and remove the ceiling panel and unsnap the old ones and snap the new ones in. Make sure to install them exactly the way they were before you started.

How do you remove stabilus lift-o-mat liftgate


Most of these lift struts can be removed by propping up the gate and prying off the strut ends from their balljoint ends. Some struts have a broad metal band that acts as a spring or retainer and you may have to slide that band off and then pop the old strut off.
To put the new one on, just center the socket over the strut and press it on or tap it with a small hammer. Make sure you put it on with the strut body either up or down the same way as the one you took off. Normally the body goes to the car and the shaft to the tailgate/hatch/trunk.

The rear latch does not open easy and doesn;t stay up. Whats wrong?


There should be two hydraulic struts - one on either side of the hatch/tailgate. If these struts have failed, the hatch/talgate will not stay open. Also, since these struts are compressed when the hatch/tailgate is closed, they provide positive lifting pressure when you unlock the hatch, pushing it away slightly from the latching mechanism. Replace the struts, and you should be all set.

I am replacing the tailgate strut that failed and can't get the trim cover off to snap out the bottom of the strut.


In the lift gate inside trim panel you will see a plastic cap plug at the door latch area. Remove the plug to gain access to the latch.You will see the plastic plug cap at the bottom of the inside lift gate trim panel. ----------- Click this link below for more details:--- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/07/how-to-remove-tailgate-strut-on.html --------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

How to replace liftgate support rod fro 2005 jeep grande cherokee


Hi ... You need two people, two new gas struts a small screw driver and a thirteen mill open end spanner.....
Change one at a time with the second person supporting the tailgate, dependant on what type is fitted the struts will have a metal "c" clip that needs to be removed at both ends on the ball joint sockets, prise the clips out and remove the strut, and replace in reverse order.... if you have the struts with the ball and sockets at each end you need to support the tailgate with your by now long suffering partnre and undo the nut and socket in the body and tailgate.... they, once loosened will come out easily..... just make sure that when refitting you dont cross threads... repeat same on the other side and then give friend a cold beer..... hope this helps.....

How do you replace tailgates struts?


I beieve they just pull off. I think they have spring clips holding them on. There is no danger of them having a lot of pressure against the rod when the door is fully open.
